    What part of this makes no sense:



    "...the company announced on Wednesday that its manufacturing operations are now shipping parts to a number of worldwide customers"



    "In 2010, Apple purchased the exclusive rights to utilize the company's amorphous metal alloys in consumer electronics."



    Let's see, shipping to a number of customers but Apple purchased the rights to be the only customer?

    You really need to work on your reading comprehension.



    Apple is the exclusive customer FOR CONSUMER ELECTRONICS. There are lots of other markets that LQMT could sell their product to.

    It actually makes sense if you read it more closely.



    It could mean that some company that has nothing to do with consumer electronics is using it.

    I bought some at .205 and then tried to buy more, but the trades wouldn't execute - even though my limit order was well above the listed price. I'm guessing that trades were occurring so fast that they couldn't keep up.

    It has been nothing but a bag of hurt since....... let's hope something's finally afoot.\



    Add: I see that cherrypop kept me company!



    Yeah, hopefully so. Seems like they have a pretty good product on their hands if they can just find some good uses for it and market it successfully. Apple getting in early is obviously a very good sign.

    Yeah the volume today is ridiculous! 8M shares moved already. Volatile as heck lol.

    I thought of that just a couple minutes ago and it makes sense. Thank you sir. We could all work on reading comprehension at times. BTW, how's that 2.25% research coming along?

    The line goes straight up. It's obviously one dude who bought a shitload of shares at once, which brought the price up. If prices are on the move real quick and you need to get in quick and time is of the essence, isn't a market order better and quicker? Otherwise you might miss out by using a limit order like you did. I don't know shit about the market, but that would seem to make sense, though I might very likely be wrong.

    It's just springy glass from what I can see. Maybe it relates to the haptic rumours going around? i.e. the screen will somehow, using some technology or other, physically respond to your touches.

    Wrong on virtually all accounts.



    First, it wasn't one guy who bought the shares all at once. Look at the volume chart. The largest share volume was 800,000 shares, but that may have been more than one buyer in that time period (they seem to report 5 minute intervals). So less than 9% of today's volume could possibly have been a single order (and probably much less).



    Second, market orders are not possible with many brokers for share price below $1. Mine would not accept it.



    Third, "market orders are quicker" is misleading. If there is an offer out there matched by my limit order, the trades would execute at the same speed. The only way the market order is faster is if I have to wait for someone to sell at my price - which leads to....



    Third, "market orders are better" is very often wrong. For volatile stocks, you almost always pay more for a market order (often MUCH more). If the stock is bouncing around, you could easily pay a significant percentage premium with a market order.

    Many companies don't like this kind of info getting out.
